Friends

December 26, 2010 – Taipei, Taiwan

Who are you with when you have extra time to spare? I usually call my friends up and invite them for a stroll or coffee/juice/tea talk (trying to step few steps away from caffeine as much as possible).

Poo

December 26, 2010 – Modern Toilet, Taipei, Taiwan

I promised before that I would post more postcards from the Modern Toilet. But it took me months.. =S

The chairs are toilet bowls but covered with made-up graphics and images so no one would mind sitting on them. I wouldn’t but only when I tried to move them towards the table. The bottom were probably embedded in the floor. And the table, guys……………Look, they are toilet sinks with just mirrors on them. HAHA

Eggs

December 26, 2010 – Taipei, Taiwan

Boiled. Cracked. Cooked. Served.

Taipei is placed as the sinful city for Gluttony by CNN Global Experiences.  It is a haven of street foods.

Red Bridge

December 28, 2010 – Taroko Gorge, Taiwan

Shakadang Trail, also known as “Mysterious Balley Trail” until 2001, welcomes its visitors with huge red bridge that arcs between two mountains with a riverbed of marble stones and blue-gray running water beneath it.

Light

December 29, 2010 – Jiufen, Taiwan

 

These lanterns were used to light up the night when there was no electricity yet in the old days. Some historians even attested that these lights covered with red colored paper with chinese characters on it were in fact the first portable lighting produced by man.

It was a necessity then it soon became a symbol of respect for Taiwan’s General, Guan Yu. A Lantern Festival is celebrated every year for the exploits of the general. Today? it also became a work of art for many.
